We cannot thank you enough for being one of our loyal customers. We know that Julius who founded Farmingdale Meat Market, would be so proud to know that the small butcher shop he started in 1946 is still thriving and growing today! We take pride on serving Long Island and the Tri-State area. The family traditions are being carried on at Farmingdale Meat Market, Inc. and its wholesale division, Main Street Wholesale Meats, by Julius’s son Kent Seelig and his grandson Lee Seelig. With a growing staff of professionals, be it drivers, cutters, sales force and office staff, we intend to serve all of our new and old customers.
As Julius said: “Give them great product and great service and you will always have a successful business.” We specialize in meat products: beef, veal, lamb, all poultry products, specialty meats and wild game. We have an aging program where we age USDA prime, angus and choice meats, so there is a product for every need. Since we are federally inspected we have a very strict HAACP program which insures the safety of our products.
